It would be great if u join a tour in BBC. Otherwise just some studio to see. Not far from Manchester United match. Very windy as it’s riverside. Be careful if you wore a skirt!

Media city continues to grow and there seems no end to the expansion. It’s great having an important media hub in the north west.
